Eastleigh Borough Council has frozen its Council Tax for 2017-18 – delivering an unprecedented 14-year period of real-term cuts in council tax for residents.

This year the average Eastleigh Borough Council element for a Band D household remains at £130.07, or just over £2.50 per week.  Less than an eighth of the total Council Tax bill for Eastleigh Borough residents goes to the Council.

Eastleigh Borough Council Leader, Cllr Keith House, said: ”We will be freezing our Council Tax again this year. That represents a real terms cut in council tax for 14 years in a row.”  He added:  “We believe this to be an unequalled record and commitment anywhere in the country and we can do this without significant reductions in our frontline services.  This has been achieved in large part, due to our excellent record of sound financial management, and our nationally recognised programme of property investments.”
